Isis

Book 0, The Harrow Series - A Novella of the Supernatural

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

If you lost someone you loved, what price would you pay to bring them back from the dead? From New York Times bestselling author Douglas Clegg comes a classic dark gothic novella of quiet horror, "...as chilling and dark as the shadows on an October night," said NY Times bestselling author Christine Feehan.

120 pages in print. For fans of Guillermo del Toro, Susan Hill, and Daphne Du Maurier.

Note: Isis is a prequel novella to the Harrow Series. 

Old Marsh, the gardener at Belerion Hall, warned the Villiers girl about the dark places and old ruins along the sea-cliffs. “Never go in, miss. Never say a prayer at its door. If you are angry, do not seek revenge by the Laughing Maiden stone or at the threshold of the Tombs. There be those who listen for oaths and vows….What may be said in innocence becomes flesh and blood in such places.”

From childhood until her sixteenth year, Iris Villiers wandered, a wild child in a repressive time, along the stone-hedged gardens and steep cliffs of the coast of Cornwall near her ancestral home. Surrounded by the stern judgments of her grandfather-the Gray Minister-and the taunts of her cruel governess, Iris finds solace in her handsome and beloved older brother who has always protected her.

But when a tragic accident occurs from the ledge of an open window, Iris discovers that she possesses the ability to speak to the dead…

From Publishers Weekly:
“Clegg (The Abandoned) expands the burgeoning backstory of his multivolume Harrow haunted house saga with this poignant chamber tragedy involving young Iris Catherine Villiers (who, as an adult, will become Isis Claviger, oracle of the spook-ridden Hudson Valley academy)…This potent novella, one of Clegg’s best, is both a stand-alone triumph and a powerful new chapter in his evolving series.”

From Fangoria Magazine:
“…a story of love, loss and longing…told with the beautiful prose of an old-fashioned Gothic era.”

From The Strand magazine:
“Haunting yet poignant, Isis is a work that should firmly place Clegg among the all-stars of horror such as Straub, Machen, LeFanu, and Stoker.”
